3.75/5 rDev +31.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a beer mug.
Appearance: Beer is a deep orange color with strong ruby tendencies. In the right (or wrong) light, it nearly looks like red pop. Head is a medium-dark ecru color which fizzes down to a thin film on the surface very quickly. Around the edges, there's a touch more thickness to the head, though. Just for the novelty of the color, and the decent head retention in spite of the beer and glass being warm, I've gotta rate this pretty high.
Smell: Cran-raspberry wheat beer. Lots of red fruit, with a gentle sourness which is evenly matched with a mellow sweetness and acceptable bitterness. Past that, a light malt character (pretty yeasty) and a touch of grassiness. I like it! Mixed well.
Taste/Mouthfeel: Well, it's very fizzy, as the imploding head would suggest. Through all the carbonation, it's difficult to taste much of anything. There's a strong wheat vibe to it, but only a smattering of fruit flavor. Moderate fresh-cut-grass, a very subdued sweet'n'sour berry flavor. Aftertaste is pretty wet...all in all, not bad, might be a good summer session beer. As it is, it's fall...all in all, not so great.
Overall: So so. Not bad, but I wouldn't recommend it.
